Does anyone know if it's illegal to fish near a pinfish trap? I was catching bait on a grass flat that had some pinfish traps and I was about 75 feet from one of the buoys, and a guy came out on his jon boat and started screaming at me saying that he just called FWC to come and arrest me for catching bait near his traps. He said it was illegal to fish within 100ft of a buoy.
I've spent an unhealthy amount of time researching this to no avail. This flat is always loaded with white bait, so i don't want to give up my bait spot because someone threw a few traps near it. Thanks in advance
